Acupuncture restores the normal flow of Qi or “life force” when it is blocked by illness or injury.

No matter what the cause or where your pain is, acupuncture can be a safe and effective treatment. Acupuncture can help you avoid the unwanted side effects of many pain medications and heal faster by increasing circulation and attracting white blood cells to the injured area.

The client is experiencing firsthand the feeling of being in the present moment while they are being induced into a hypnotic trance state. And it is during this hypnotic state that we help the person to change those things that they have wanted to change for their own sake by giving them the positive suggestions needed for their changes to take place.
Of course it also helps if a person makes a daily relaxing practice of focusing your attention on the present moment in the little common things we do and see and feel every day. Taking the time to truly taste, smell, feel, hear, and see those small things like eating, drinking, showering, driving, walking, running and on and on…really take the time to notice the collateral beauty you might say every moment of every day.
Enjoy every single 'present' moment this summer!

If you are looking for vitamin E from sources other than nuts, seeds, fish, or vegetable oils, fresh vegetables are a good bet. After all, you may not always want a fishy meal like abalone or sardines or may be looking for a lighter, less calorific means to the vitamin than oil or nuts. Here’s a look at some of the best vegetable sources of vitamin E and how you can incorporate them into your diet.

Antioxidant Vitamin E Plays A Role In Overall Health

You need vitamin E to keep some basic muscle and nerve function going. Which is why a deficiency of the nutrient can cause you to lose sensation in the arms and legs or lead to muscle weakness in general. This antioxidant vitamin helps fight oxidative stress – a problem that’s been linked to everything from heart problems and eye problems/macular degeneration to graying of hair, wrinkle formation, and other signs of aging. Equally important, it seems to play a role in immune function and may help protect you from having long or frequent bouts of illness.1

I've been in the hospital.
 
***
 
So I missed a pattern this past week. For those of you that have experienced coaching - you'll know what I mean. 
A piece of childhood coding that was in a blindspot, steered me towards an undesirable outcome this week so that I could truly feel the impact of my old beliefs and finally release yet another that was holding me back.
 
A week ago, I came up in full body inflammation. Swelling, itching... I looked like I had severe chemical burns. The lumps, swelling and redness were migrating around my body by the hour, causing strange patterns, bruising, and limiting my mobility. 
I didn't think much of it because that was my reality for most of last year, until I realised I had quite a severe gluten allergy.
I assumed some of my food had been contaminated, popped an antihistamine and carried on with my work week.
 
But it didn't let up.
 
By Friday morning my occipital lymph nodes were so swollen I could barely turn my head. Parts of me were turning purple. I was being woken every morning at 4am on the dot with my skin on FIRE. 
Anywhere pressure was placed immediately swelled into hard lumps - some of the oedema was easily 2 inches deep. 
My housemate was practically apoplectic with rage at my blasé attitude - she had been hospitalised as a teen with the same thing because apparently it leads to anaphylactic shock. She almost died... And I wouldn't even take an hour to go to the GP.
 
'It's just shock' I laughed - my coaching business was super profitable last year and tax time is here. 'I'm just reeling from how much I'll be sending to the govt. in a few weeks.'
 
Writing this now... I am almost speechless at how cavalier I was with my health last week. 
 
I finally went to a GP yesterday morning, who unsurprisingly, sent me immediately to the emergency dept. at the hospital with a referral letter for an immunologist and a cortisone shot. (Incidentally, I received neither and am still in pain, but that's another story and not the point of this post.)
 
While I was in the waiting room, nursing a bruised arm from a comically bad multiple-attempt canula-insertion, my subconscious threw up an unpleasant memory. (Coding appears regularly now, because I've been doing my deprogramming work for so long.)
 
It was a picture of me, face down in the foetal position on the lounge room floor. I was 13, and I was literally screaming in pain. I had (probably - it was never treated) salmonella poisoning. I was unable to walk for 3 weeks and had likely been crawling to the bathroom when the pain hit. 
In between screams I could hear my mother and grandmother standing over me, discussing what to do.
 
"It might be a blockage."
"She probably needs an ambulance."
"Yeah but it's $75 now."
"Let's just see what happens."
 
I learned something important in that moment. 
 
Sarah doesn't get treatment. Sarah doesn't warrant help. Sarah isn't cared for.
 
Many of these things I already knew... But in that moment, screaming into the carpet in the worst pain of my life... Those truths were burned into my hollow, shaking little body.
 
They went in so securely, that the following year, when I split a bone so badly another bone slid down inside the vertical break, when I was told I wouldn't be taken to the hospital, I didn't even question it. I just strapped my hand up and carried on. 
I was eventually taken to a Dr, because I couldn't do most of my chores. He took out a protractor and measured the angle - "You have a 40 degree bend in this finger!" He exclaimed, and sent me straight for emergency surgery. On the way to the hospital, Grandad said it 'probably wasn't even broken' and that I was 'being a wuss'.
 
And last week, when my body was screaming in pain, what did I do? 
 
I followed the rules.
 
I laughed it off. I dismissed the idea of assistance. I kept working. I made jokes about using my hairbrush to reach hard-to-itch-while-still-in-bed areas, like the backs of my knees. 
 
This is why I say to clients:
"The problem isn't that you had a bad parent... The problem is that you ARE a bad parent."
 
It's not what they did to you then, that's messing up your life. It's the fact that you're copying them. 
You're abiding by the same rules. You're following the same protocol.
You're acting as though the way they did it, is the way it IS. 
 
When that coding was revealed to me in the waiting room I wanted to cry, but it seemed inappropriate given the level of suffering around me. So I just sat, watery-eyed, and stared into space until they called my name. 
I cried this morning though. I cried for the little girl who was left screaming on the floor.. and for the adult that I still, sometimes, leave screaming on the floor. 
 
But I made myself a promise, too.
 
That piece of coding is done now. 
 
Next time I need a Dr, I will fucking get one. 
 
And I hope the next time you need something, you fucking get it, too.
 
 
All my love,
Sarah

People seeking change in their lives tend to think that "change" is the result of some big decision.

"I need to move cities!"

"I need to change careers!"

"I need to start a huge project!"

And while all those things can be beneficial, it's the small stuff that ends up bringing about the biggest change.

1. Learn To Cook A Healthy Morning Breakfast

When did cooking get the bad reputation of being "difficult?" It's no more "difficult" than anything else in life--it just takes a bit of learning. For 10 minutes every morning, search on YouTube or Google something for breakfast you want to learn how to make--and then follow the instructions and make it. 10 minutes a day, 7 days a week, that's a little over an hour of practice per week. Add that up over a month, 3 months, a year, and you'll not only be a much better chef, but you'll be setting a better foundation for yourself each morning: Learning something new, and eating some healthy.

Do you know what the number one key to relationship success is?
 
Partner selection.
 
I know - anticlimactic, huh... Bet you were hoping it was some digital dealy you could buy online and maybe stick to the face of whoever you're currently dating...
 
But it's not. It's all in who you choose.
 
If you choose someone with misaligned values, or someone that is a trauma-bond rather than a soul-mate... you're going to have issues.
 
Similar situation with coaches.
 
I'm not a good match for most people, because I'm what's known as an 'amp'.
I can 'blow up' whatever will work to a level you've never seen or heard of before...
 
BUT...
 
Anything unstable, unsustainable or toxic won't survive the energy.
 
Shitty friendships don't survive my coaching containers.
Toxic relationships don't survive my coaching containers.
Old programming doesn't survive my coaching containers. 
Out of date coding doesn't survive my coaching containers.
Trauma bonds don't survive my coaching containers.
Inaccurate, limiting beliefs don't survive my coaching containers.
 
As many of you know, I rent space in a wellness centre in Sydney's inner west, so I have plenty of foot traffic past my office door. 
People see the sign that lists my services and frequently stop me to ask what words like 'subconscious reprogramming', and 'strategic intervention' mean.
 
Yesterday a lady in the waiting room told me she was afraid to do her deep work because she expected a lot of the people in her life wouldn't like the real her. She believed that if she processed and released the coping mechanisms that kept her tied to the current frequency, then she would be alone. 
 
I said to her - 'I can't promise any of your relationships would survive coaching, because I don't know how many of them are trauma-bonds, and how many are just you settling for what you think you can get, rather than what you are actually capable of receiving... But what I can tell you is that if you're not ready for a totally new projected reality, I am not the coach you should hire.'
 
Unfortunately, a lot of people I know are still hiring (and dating) based on what they think they can get, rather than what they actually want. 
 
If you hire a coach that is within your current comfort zone (e.g. a price point that doesn't affect you, abilities that don't make you nervous etc), you've moved sideways, rather than up. 
You've hired within your *current* perceived identity, rather than the version of you that you're trying to create.
Given that your manifestations are the product of who you're being, moving from who you are currently will just produce more of the same.
 
Thus, if you want to create something bigger, newer, bolder... MORE...
You are going to have to move differently.
 
What big decisions are you being called to make this week?
And have your decisions of late been aligned with what you can see right now, or what you want to see....
 
 
Forever in your corner,
Sarah xo

The ancient treatment promises deep relaxation and internal healing through pressure-focused foot massages.

Reflexology—you see it on almost every spa menu, from the refreshingly affordable, no-frills massage joints to the decadent day spas you might hit up on vacation. From the outside it looks like your run-of-the-mill foot massage. (Not a bad thing when you work on your feet all day!) But one look at that mesmerizing foot chart every reflexologist has hanging in their office and you begin to understand that the objective of this therapy is to do a whole lot more than just open up your arches.
